Year Purchased: 2003

About the owner: I am originally from Indiana and graduated from Purdue University with a degree in Math. My background is I.T. I have lived in Portland since 1997. I am single and love to cook and travel.

It is within walking distance of the Alberta Arts District, the Historic Mississippi Avenue district and the North Williams Corridor. This is a quiet residential neighborhood, great for walking and bicycling and close to the Peninsula Park Rose Garden.
